This book is centered around a fantastical reinterpretation of Spanish Catholicism and medieval Mediterranean cultures; I appreciate the myths that were sewn into the fabric of the story. I loved the main character of the book, an unexpected and genuine hero of this book; Elisa is pampered, although not spoiled, fat, and insecure, all traits that lead people to underestimate her. The ending felt a bit too neat for me, but that doesn't deter my interest in the upcoming sequel.
